Focus on Texas catchers

The Rangers are one of the only teams with catching depth in Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Gerald Laird, Taylor Teagarden and Max Ramirez, and nearly eight teams have been trying to deal for one. The Yankees are one of several clubs in on Laird, and Boston is in on Teagarden.

Shelly Duncan, Daryl Rasner and Melky Cabrera should be enough to land the Yanks Tex.

And you're willing to trade 3 young players for a rent-a-player and put Damon back in Center?

Yankees get: Texiera
Braves get: Juan Miranda, Melky Cabrera, Alan Horne, + prospect TBA later

gives them a young 1st baseman
gives them a young CFer with a good arm yet below average hitting
gives them a young starting pitcher with a high ceiling

But as I said in the Yankee forum, this is probably the Yankees way of "Santana-ing" the Sox and Rays by just raising the price

Duncans out with a bad shoulder no? Besides what are the Yankees going to do with another 1B right now? Maybe in the offseason when they are free of Giambi and Sexy.

Are you serious? If that landed Tex then surely the apocalypse is on the horizon.

Shelley Duncan has the potential to go 40 for 600 in a season and hit 40 HRs in the 40 hits

There is no way the Dodgers would package any of these three players together in a deal: Either, Kemp, Loney. It's just not going to happen.

As the Braves consider offers on a possible deal for first baseman Mark Teixeira, they're faced with the real possibility that the injury to Tim Hudson's pitching elbow is significant. According to sources, the early indications from teams in talks about Teixeira are that the Braves are asking for some form of pitching in return.

Angels first baseman Casey Kotchman was pulled off the field during pregame warmups this afternoon at Fenway Park. And there are strong indications he is about to be traded to the Braves for Mark Teixeira, according to a source with knowledge of those discussions. Details are still being finalized, and additional, lesser names are expected to be involved. But Kotchman for Teixeira is the core of this deal.

The latest: A second source with knowledge of these discussions says the Braves will get Kotchman, plus a second lesser name, for Teixeira in a 2-for-1 deal.

No, but there's no harm in hoping. ;)

And there's no reason other teams couldn't have fleeced the Pirate as badly as the Yankees do. Stop squeezing the sour grapes.
